Abstract: In overloaded heart the cardiomyocytes adapt to increased mechanical and neurohumoral stress by activation of hypertrophic program, resulting in morphological changes of individual cells and specific changes in gene expression. Accumulating evidence suggests an important role for the zinc finger transcription factor GATA-4 in hypertrophic agonist-induced cardiac hypertrophy. However, its role in stretch-induced cardiomyocyte hypertrophy is not known. We employed an in vitro mechanical stretch model of cultured… Show more
